Antifungal study of two synthesized phenolic azo derivatives

Ramadan Bawa, Mohammed Alzaraide
Two phenolic azo derivatives consisting of anthracene moiety were synthesized by coupling 9-anthryldiazonium slat with candidate phenols. The synthesized compounds were screened for their antifungal activities against Aspergillus niger (A. niger). The results were compared with two commercial antibiotics and showed moderate to high levels in inhibitory.
